State leaders in Oklahoma aren’t the only ones applauding this week’s action by President Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to reverse the Obama Clean Power Plan.
So are energy industry leaders.
“The Trump administration’s executive order sends a signal that his federal agencies will put American energy production first with sensible regulations and best available science,” said Chad Warmington, President of the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Association.
He said it’s clear Oklahoma is ready to lead the charge with its abundant oil and natural gas supply.
“While oil and natural gas production has increased over the decades in Oklahoma, the nation’s overall pollutants regulated under the Clean Air Act have declined by 85 percent according to EPA’s data.”
